Here's a modern replacement for all you VG swap fans. How about a 3.0L V6 making 241hp and 406ft/lb stock!

The recent engines present many more issues as a 510 swap candidate, mainly with the electrics. Hopefully a likely candidate comes along before all the SRs and KAs dry up.

Looks like maybe Chrysler came away with some of Daimler's Diesel tech Knowhow from back in the DaimlerChrysler days (1998–2007). I just hope it's not a fat iron block designed for a truck/suv application. If it's all aluminum, then it really would be useful. Who know, I believe the Daimler sprinter's 3.0L v6 is aluminum, but only makes 181hp and 295 lbf·ft.

Hmm, interesting. Would think that a 2+2 built off the Z platform couldn't be any lighter than the Z itself, which is heavier than the old S chassis by far. And that we should have heard about something already...

Engine will still be electronically gee-gawed out the wazoo, though. They all are today. Might bring the first dual-clutch trans to a 510, though...

Wow! Lotus did a fantastic job on the Tesla Roadster. This will be very interesting.
